BRIGG TRACTOR RUN 2020: AMENDED DATE ANNOUNCED
Please note that the Brigg Tractor Run 2020 has changed its date due to forthcoming roadworks on the A1084 while a new barrier crossing is being installed by Network Rail.
Brigg Young Farmers say the Tractor Run will now take place on Sunday, March 8 and NOT the following Sunday, as originally planned.
This switch follows Brigg Blog posting a story about the crossing replacement contract - details of which were drawn to the attention of the Tractor Run organisers, who reacted quickly and amended the date. We do have our uses - occasionally!
Route and timings for the event are as follows:
10am: Gather at Ripon Farm Services near the level crossing at the top of Westrum Lane, Brigg, with refreshments available.
10.45am: Set off along Bigby High Road, the A1084.
12:15am: Picnic Area, Barton - refreshment/dinner stop.
1.00pm: Set off for Barrow.
1.15pm: Thornton Curtis.
1.40pm: Melton Ross.
1.55pm: Re-enter Brigg along Wrawby Road.
2.05pm: Finish back at Ripon Farm Services.
Please note that these are approximate times; delays may occur along this lengthy circular route.
Drivers and passengers are paying a fee to take part, and proceeds will be donated to Lindsey Lodge Hospice, the local charity.
Tractors taking part will include modern models and a good number that first took to local fields decades ago.
